      781. Hannah Clay, born Abt. 1716 in Prince George, Virginia; died August 5, 1790 in Nottoway, Virginia. She was the daughter of 1562. Thomas CLAY and 1563. Hannah.

Notes for Matthew Cabaniss:
Matthew Cabanis Sr. (c.1712—c.1789) [C.3]

Matthew Cabanis Sr. was the son of Henry and Mary (—) Cabanis and was born about 1712 and about 1734 he married Hannah Clay [1848.4.6].
Hannah Clay [1848.4.6] married Matthew Cabanis [C.3]. Matthew’s name appeared first in Amelia County when the governor granted him and his brother, George, a land patent of 347 acres on the upper side of Cellar Fork of Deep Creek on 2 January 1737/8. About that same time, Matthew and Hannah were at the Prince George County courthouse seeking legacies promised in her father’s will. Amelia County listed Matthew as a tithable in 1737 and George not until 1738.
On 19 September 1740, the Amelia County court clerk reported “Matthew Cabiness, Surveyor of a road to be cleared from James Anderson’s road into Jordan’s road and so to Nottoway Chapel.” He surveyed a bridle way from Lazaretto Creek to Nottoway Chapel in April 1745. Nottoway Chapel was an early Episcopal chapel in what is Nottoway County. Jordans Road was near what is now Nottoway Avenue in the town of Blackstone.
In 1742 Matthew secured a patent for 390 acres in Amelia County on the south side of the Little Nottoway River but failed to cultivate this land. Samuel Terry [BK.3.5/S] obtained a grant for the land and assigned it to Marston Green [G.2.8] who received a patent for the property in 1753.
In 1743 Matthew obtained 400 acres in Amelia County on Lazaretto Creek. Matthew renewed this second patent with an additional 212 acres on 20 September 1748. He appears to have methodically subdivided this land into six parcels of precisely 102 acres each and conveyed it to his sons. On 24 November 1768, Matthew Cabanis Sr. conveyed to his three sons, Matthew Jr., John, and Charles Cabanis 102 acres of land each. Ten years later, on 25 July 1778, he sold Matthew Jr. another 102 acres for £102. Perhaps Matthew Sr. had set this parcel of land aside for another son who died or moved away. Matthew later, on 15 April 1787, conveyed to Henry Cabanis land in Amelia County for £102. The unrecorded deed did not specify the acreage. This was probably his son Henry Cabanis [1848.4.6.8]. Yet Matthew conveyed land to his other sons for a nominal consideration and Henry paid £102. Perhaps this was his nephew Henry Cabanis III [C.1.1].
The number 102 appears to have been popular with Matthew. He carved his land into parcels of 102 acres and twice conveyed land for £102. One must wonder if he sold 102 acres of land to Henry Cabanis.
Matthew died in Nottoway County about 1789 (will dated 6 June 1789, recorded 4 Aug. 1790).


Marriage indicated in Prince George Minute Book, 1727-1741, Page 118 (dated 9
May 1738); Surveyor, Amelia County Order Book 1, Page 125, 311, (dated)
September 1740 and April 1745); religion, Amelia County Legislative Petitions,
Folio 464 (dated 12 May 1780);
Nottoway County, Virginia, WILL BOOK 1, Page 20, WILL Dated 6 June
1789. Naming all his children and his wife. Was proven 4 August 1790, Nottoway
County, Virginia.
In 1768 the sons, Charles, John, and Matthew Jr., received shares of property
from their father who was a well-to-do landowner. John Cabaniss moved to
Lunenburg Co., where he is recorded as paying tithes in 1769, 1772, 1773, 1776,
and 1783. Charles also moved thither, for in 1776 he was "processioning" land
there. George and Henry (Revolutionary Soldiers) remained in Amelia (Later
Nottoway) Co., where they appeared as "Heads of Families" in the Tax
enumerations (printed Census of 1790). Matthew Jr. Also continued to live in
Amelia, where he died in 1781 (or 1788). Elijah remained at his father's home.

The number 102 appears to have been popular with Matthew. He carved his land into parcels of 102 acres and twice conveyed land for £102. One must wonder if he sold 102 acres of land to Henry Cabanis.
Matthew died in Nottoway County about 1789 (will dated 6 June 1789, recorded 4 Aug. 1790).
